Immortals with yellow flowers

Aeoniums like sun, variegated species and cultivars need extra bright light.

Scientific name: Aeonium spp.

Plant type: perennial succulent

Plant Size: 2-60 inches, depending on variety

Watering needs: when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry

Sun exposure: full sun to part shade

Aeonium is a genus that includes more than 35 species of succulents with distinctive waxy and glossy rosettes. Their handsome rosettes can be solid or variegated in green, red, white and yellow. They produce clusters of small star-shaped flowers that emerge from the center of the rosette.

These are relatively slow-growing plants that can take up to five years to produce small bouquets. Most Aeoniums are unifruit, which means the mother plant dies once it blooms. Fortunately, the mother plant produces many shoots that remain as it blooms and dies.

Baby toes excel in stamina, drought resistance and quick adaptation to new environments.

Scientific name: Fenestraria rhopalophylla

Plant type: perennial succulent

Plant Size: 3 inches tall

Watering needs: when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry

Sun Exposure: Full sun

These desert native perennials are hardy in USDA zones 10-11 and require a hot, dry climate. As its name suggests, this clumping succulent looks like an adorable bunch of baby toes.

Baby toes bloom in late summer and when they fall, they burst with daisy-like blooms in a variety of colors, including white, purple, and yellow. This species is very drought tolerant, and frequent watering can do more harm than good. Soaking and drying is the best method.

Allow Fenestraria rhopalophylla to dry out between waterings, then give them a thorough bath every 1-2 weeks. You only need to water them every 2-4 weeks during the summer when they are dormant.
